The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape extends its heartfelt condolences on the sad passing of liberation struggle stalwart, former Robben Island political prisoner and former Director– Publicity and Information of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC), Cde Waters Bishop Toboti, who passed away on Saturday,5 September 2020 at the age of 81 years.
Comrade Waters Toboti devoted his life to the liberation struggle and served in various leadership roles in the PAC both in exile and inside the country after the unbanning of political organizations. Tatu Toboti’s life is a rich tapestry of the best attributes of that special generation of freedom fighters to which he belonged – total devotion to the struggle for the liberation; unflinching commitment to principle; loyal and selfless service to the cause of the people.
He will be remembered for his consistent engagement in the battle of ideas, always positioning the PAC’s views on matters of national interest in both electronic and print media. He will now join other PAC stalwarts such as Phillip Kgosana, Knox Tsotsobe, Mfanasekhaya Gqobose, Potlako Leballo, Timothy Jantjie, Clarence Makwetu, Jeff Masemola, Robert Sobukwe, Zephania Mothopeng and many others who have long departed.
The nation has lost a true stalwart and freedom fighter in Tatu Waters Bishop Toboti . We wish to convey our deepest condolences to his family, friends and his organisation, the Pan Africanist Congress.
May his soul rest in peace.
